Location is Everything
Welcome to the Birthplace of Heli-skiing
We didn’t invent heli-skiing, but we’re proud to spend every day skiing in the mountains where it all began. Halfway between Golden and Revelstoke, Heather Mountain Lodge is one of Canada’s most accessible heli-skiing destinations. Calgary International Airport is a simple—and scenic—four-hour drive from our front door. That’s nothing—at least by Canadian standards. And while we’re easier to get to than many operations, our lodge feels remote in all the right ways.
From Calgary International Airport, head north on Deerfoot Trail (Highway 2), then exit onto Stoney Trail North West (Highway 201). Drive all the way to the Trans Canada Highway (#1 HWY-16th Avenue). Head west on Highway 1—this is the highway you’ll take all the way to the lodge. You’ll pass through Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise, and Golden. Just before you reach Golden you’ll travel through 15 kilometers of the Kicking Horse Canyon. Please use caution in this area. Heather Mountain Lodge is 55 kilometers or 45 minutes west of Golden. You’ll find us on the right (north) side of Highway 1, marked by a lighted sign at the turnoff, as well as a few small signs noting ‘Great Canadian Heli-Skiing’ and ‘Heather Mountain Lodge’ prior. Once you turn off the highway, the lodge is to your left about 100 meters. The entire trip should take approximately 3.5 to 4 hours.
